Welcome to Mulberry School
The Mulberry School is an independent, private, non-profit school that provides children with the opportunity to learn in an environment that values curiosity and natural development. We work to "nurture the innate love of learning" by teaching children how, as opposed to what, to learn.
Serving the Bloomington-Normal community since 1971, Mulberry School is a cooperative institution where parents have the opportunity to participate in nearly every aspect of the school. It is this support and input that allows us to provide a unique learning experience for our students.
- We are gearing up for the annual Book Fair the week of September 15-19. Family Literacy Night will be held on Wednesday, September 17. Details to follow!
- Smile! School Picture Day will be held on Wednesday, October 1.

Our full day 4K program at Mulberry School focuses on academic and social emotional skills to prepare the whole child for Kindergarten. We align our curriculum with the early learning and developmental standards to ensure each child is exposed to age-appropriate activities.
Curriculum areas include literacy, story writing, math using manipulatives, and science through exploration in a play-based environment. Small class sizes at Mulberry School ensure that each child is challenged as his/her own level.
In this play-based learning environment, a Mulberry School student will gain independence, leadership, confidence, and social skills. We believe in educating the whole child in the 4K program by focusing on Kindergarten readiness skills.
Mulberry School is hiring an Administrative Assistant for the 2014-15 school year.
